Re: Key Largo to Bimini to Berry Islands

Well I'm ecstatic. I just came back from West Marine, and I looked at several of their charts and noticed discrepancies there as well. I determined.....

...that I'm an idiot.

My digital charts go from soundings in feet to soundings in meters halfway across the crossing, and both of my paper charts maps for the Bahamas turn out to be in meters as well.

Nav 101 = FAIL

On the plus side, this is FANTASTIC news for our voyage!!!
